Are the Yankees Worth the Money?

We did this post last season when the Yankees were struggling to make the postseason for the second straight season and I wanted to take another look at the team again this season to see if the team was worth the money. As we know the Yankees have one of the highest payrolls in all of Major League Baseball but is Hal Steinbrenner and the fans getting their money's worth? With the greatness that is sabermetrics and with a little help from we can decide just that.


  1. The bullpen numbers are funny. Just how is it that Betances, Shreve and Wilson all make under a million dollars with Betances making the least? You'd think Shreve would since he's the rookie.

    1. Shreve and Wilson also came from other teams which probably has a lot to do with it. I think it's interesting to see that Miller has the lowest WAR of the four.


Sorry for the Capatcha... Blame the Russians :)
